Mrs. Kerri Anderson

Poetry is unlike any other form of writing. There is no right or wrong way to write it. A proper sentence structure is not required. Punctuation and capitalization are optional. It is not read quickly and is not read once, but multiple times. The subject can be about anything: an apology, hope, bells, a jabberwocky, bribery, chocolate, or a historical battle.


In this class, students will learn about famous poets from the last two centuries. Through reading their poetry, students will learn how to read, recite, and analyze poems. Students will be required to memorize multiple poems and will also have the opportunity to write their own poetry.
